I too would like to know the maker of this flooring. Is this wood or laminate?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Layouts: A Vote for the Good Old Galley
The butler's pantry has the efficiency of the galley layout, and has been appropriated to the high-function sector of larger stagelike kitchens. The parallel walls offer maximum storage and access and no wasted space. More: The changing modern kitchen
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Great Space: The Butler's Pantry
In a large home, a butler's pantry can be the size of a whole kitchen in a smaller house or apartment. I love the library ladder, vintage style and natural light in this one. Because butler's pantries are often narrow, cabinet doors have glass fronts so you can see all your wares at once.
2. High end. Of course, ladders aren't just for libraries anymore. When you need storage and you can't add width, add height. Include a charming library ladder to grab those hard-to-reach items, like the cookie jar you stored up high.
